Product description


Praise for Aline Templeton's Marjory Fleming series (:)

'Loved it' (Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

'A fascinating cast of possible villains is explored in this skilfully plotted and well-paced novel, each vividly described, entirely believable and never sliding into the usual parodies of country folk. But its real strength is DI Marjory Fleming, both tough and vulnerable as she struggles to track down the killer . . . This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish. Even better, it's the second in a series, so there's more pleasure to come.' (Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

'In fictional terms the combination of domesticity and detection is very appealing, especially when it comes with a detailed, vivid portrayal of a complete society . . . an interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual series.' (Literary Review on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. (Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH)

[Aline Templeton] has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche. (Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH)

'It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline's characters are so beautifully drawn . . .' (J Wallis Martin)

A compelling read. (Margaret Yorke on COLD IN THE EARTH)

Book Description

'I'm sure it won't be long before I have to write 'the best-selling Aline Templeton'. This is seriously good crime writing.' Sue Baker, Personal Choice, Publishing News
